Abstract:

The miniaturization of sensors has in recent years led to the ability to provide multiple sensor operations from a single Unmanned Aircraft System UAS platform. Multiple UAS platforms can be synchronized to link devices from separate UAS platforms thus proving a powerful capability for data collection, while opening up interesting opportunities in the way data is retrieved and used. A range of new sensors being investigated will be discussed with reference to selected case studies that have taken place. As we move into an increasingly growing, data rich environment, data management, quality and pedigree will become of increasing importance. Operations for both defence and non-defence applications will be discussed with reference to the present capability and what is required in future systems.
